This all day training workshop will explore why and how incorporating digital media into our collections and programming is now an essential part of children’s librarianship, and tips and tricks for translating traditional storytelling techniques into the digital realm.
The workshop will include information on:
• Identifying sources for current research on the effects of digital media on young children.
• Identifying review sources for digital media for children.
• Methods librarians have been using to incorporate digital media into their storytimes.
• How to model healthy media behavior in early literacy programming.
This program is funded through the 2013-2016 Family Literacy Grant.
